This time I used Lauren's Joyful Noise and worked a bit longer on the levels to get things looking right.

There is so MUCH to enjoy about this art.
Contrasting of perfect hard edged circles and the chaotic swirls. Contrasting of textures in the gems and the background. The enormous range of truly gorgeous colours. The echo of planetary orbit making us feel "I've seen this before.......?"
Just fantastic work.

This is really stunning. Gorgeous colours and design in the fractal. I'm not a fan of gold work, but this is rather pleasing - there is not too much of it, it is thin and it really seems to be part of the picture and not something the picture is of. The jewels have fabulous designs. Lovely.

Only two reservations. First, I also find the names at the top a bit distracting. They do blend in somewhat, but I'd still prefer them at the bottom. Second, it could be my eyes (see previous remarks about glasses), but I feel as though the jewels look a bit flat at the top and that this is because the shines on them need to be nudged upwards a little. Like I said, could just be me.

Otherwise, superbly done.
